Rejection of Proposed Cell Tower-760 Topsail Rd.
We, the undersigned residents of Mount Pearl, call on Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada to reject the application made by Eastlink to erect a high communications tower at 760 Topsail Road, Mount Pearl, NL.
This tower does NOT meet Mount Pearl City zoning regulations. These zoning regulations were put in place by the City to uphold a certain standard in residential areas. The construction of this tower, in this location, will completely defeat the purpose of the City’s regulations.
This communication tower is NOT essential to the provision of cellular service in this area. Eastlink states that this is their only option, this is NOT true. Other established cell phone service providers have excellent coverage and service in this area, proving that this location is NOT essential to the Eastlink network.
This location is directly in the backyard of a residential neighbourhood. This tower will negatively impact the beautiful landscape and have many adverse effects on all the residents, many of whom have young children, in this area. As well, it is in very close proximity of a Primary/Elementary school, a largely visited Church and is an area that is very busy with many residents of the neighbourhood, including children.
